I used a yarn from The Uncommon Thread who specialise in luxury yarns which they hand dye to a wonderful spectrum of deep and luscious colours. This one is their BFL Sock which is soft but with a wonderful lustre and the colour is one of my favourites called Bassenthwaite. I used about 128g in total so needed two 100g skeins but the leftovers will not be wasted.
I did knit mine on a smaller needle because I wanted more of a long wide scarf effect than a wrap. I am so happy with the result.
